Salem Etsians

Today the newly formed Etsy Team, Salem Etsians met for the first time. Merritt put together this group with the hope that if we join together we can be more successful. I love the idea of real people to chat with, plus hopefully we can capitalize on the “buy local” movement if we advertise in town as a team. The group that showed up today was a mixed bag including all types of artists and a vintage seller. Several of us are also new to Salem so hopefully we can help each other navigate the town as well as the mysterious ways of Etsy.

So far we’re planning a craft night, which is even turning into a “craft crawl” since there are 3 craft shops on Front Street all interested in participating. Other ideas include selling at local markets, making joint business cards/flyers and setting up gallery nights where we sell and share our crafts. Hopefully we can realize all of these ideas, but even if not – I got to get to the Coven early, have my favorite sandwich (french onion soup) and get a couple hours of grading in, followed by another couple hours of socializing with cool people. It’s already a win from where I stand.
